It’s Your Love


What is it that shines brightly and overcomes all darkness?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that floods me with peace in the midst of the storm?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that fills me with joy even in difficult circumstance?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that illuminates my mind with Truth?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that overflows my heart with compassion for unloveable folk?
It’s Your Love!

What is it that lights up the way I should go?
It’s Your Love!

What is this zeal and passion I feel?
It is Your amazing, everlasting, abiding, unconditional Love!

Let me be radiant with Your Love, Lord… with Your Love.

Then I Saw Jesus

Then I saw Jesus
Standing before me
Standing before me with love.

Then I saw Jesus
Standing before me
He has such eyes of love.

Then I saw Jesus
Bearing my pain
Lifting my heavy load.

Then I saw Jesus
Weeping for me
Lifting my heavy load.

Then I saw Jesus
Dressed in pure white
Girded about with gold.

Then I saw Jesus
Radiant with glory
Eyes like flames of fire.

Then I saw Jesus
Seated in Heaven
Clothed in Royal Robes.

Then I saw Jesus
Smiling in heaven
Standing at the Father’s throne.

He bids us come
Into His Presence
He bids us come home.

He bids come home.
Come home.

Listen to the song as the Lord gave it to me at this site:

He’s my Everything


He’s my brother
He’s my friend
He’s my Savior
He’s my Lord
He’s my Father
He’s my counselor
He’s my wisdom
He’s my guide
He’s my protector
He’s my defender
He’s my healer
He’s my provider
He’s my joy
He’s my peace
He’s my righteousness
He’s my shelter
Pours out His Spirit
Pours out His Love
He’s my Jesus
He’s my everything
He’s all I’ll ever need.

Beauty of His Holiness

Glorious sea

In the beauty of His Holiness I find rest for my soul.
In the beauty of His Holiness I find joy that gives me strength.
In the beauty of His Holiness I find love that heals my heart.
In the beauty of His Holiness I find peace that makes me whole.

His beauty is beyond description as it washes over me.
His beauty is like an ocean, a glorious magnificent sea.

Holy Night


Yes, holy night.

Magnificent and bright.

Glorious sight.

Surprized fright.

Joyful, Heaven’s Delight.

Babe, wrapped tight.

Savior. Love’s Light.

Deeper. Higher.

Deeper. I want to go much deeper.
Higher, however much higher I can go.
I must know the depths of my soul’s Keeper
And climb the highest hills so I can know.

Know the One who fearfully and wonderfully made me.
Experience the blessed shelter of His wings.
Enter the fearful Presence of His Glory.
Bask in the Holiness of His secret things.

Deeper, I must find the ancient way.
Higher, I must lean on His strength some how.
There’s so much more that awaits every day
Than what I am living right now.

I know there is a road that goes to something new
Lovingly My Lord bids me to come.
There’s obstacles along the way that block my view.
So, to the altar of sacrifice I must run.

Deeper, each time I go back to the cleansing altar.
Higher, the roadway to His heart becomes more clear.
He removes the sins and hurts that cause me to falter.
He fills me with great hope and joyful cheer.

So, I press on seeking His Presence.
I keep my eyes fixed on Him alone.
Day by day I let down my defense.
Soon, I will see the King on His glorious throne.

Deeper, but not yet in death taken out of this world.
Higher. I just know I can enter His Presence here and now.
Jesus paved the way to the Father with His blood.
His disciples follow Him with heads bowed down.

Intensity of love. His fragrance and His touch
Deeper, higher is my, our, heritage.
It’s a place where we become for Him a flaming torch
And enter the glories of His Heaven’s edge.

Face to Face

Delight pours out of heaven to my heart!
Excitement. Enlightenment. Clouds depart, suddenly, I can see!
His arms are wide open. He greets me with a shout!
The Lord is glad that I am His. He laughs and sings over me.

We dance together and we cry together
He takes me in His loving arms.
For endless minutes we smile at each other.
He’s my guard to keep me from all harm.

He’s always there to pick me up.
No matter what I do or say
He eases my broken heart.
He never ever turns me away.

He watches over me each and every day
His glorious wonders to perform
He walks with me and comforts me in my way
He makes sure I am clothed, fed and warm.

I’ve learned that He is proud of me
And in Him I can never fail.
As long as I am humble, on bended knee
He preserves me and works out every detail.

One day as I walk and talk with Him
The cloud of this earth will forever fade away.
We will stand face to face. He will lift my chin.
And, I will look into His eyes clearly on that glorious day!

A Pepper Festival


Could the red be any more brilliant?
Or, the orange more clear and true?
Russet tones mixed with vermillion
Amber tips on yellow with hint of dew.

Darkest depths of shiney forest green
Surrounded by a myriad of emerald leaves.
Royal shades of eggplant and plum are seen.
A breeze moves the stalks in a wave like the seas.

Ordinary pepper plants have become a festival
Like strings of colored lights aglow.
One can only see this radiant display in the fall
When God’s hand paints the Autumn rainbow.

I Yield…a prayer

No matter how much loss I fear, I yield.
I yield to Your greater plan for me, my Lord.
It is sometimes hard to remember you are my Shield.
But, You are! And, You lift every heavy load.

No matter what others think of me, I yield.
I yield to your perfect ways, my Lord.
Even if friends and family say I’m far afield
Your voice I will follow. You are my Shepherd.

I yield because You loved me first.
I yield because You are my all and all.
I yield because after You alone I thirst.
I yield because you will never let me fall.

In obedience and great sacrifice Your treasures are found.
Humbly yielding is pavement for your Holy Highway.
It is only in my submission will Your glory abound
And I can walk in the fullness of Your Presence every day.

To Know…


To walk in the cool of evening
Clothed in glorious grace.
In a perfect place of abiding
Priviledged to meet face to face.

To soak in cascades of love endless
Basking in heaven on earth overflow.
Every burden becoming weightless;
Vanquished by His cleansing glow.

To know the heart of the One that made me
Dwelling in the very center of Him.
Hearing His thoughts in wondrous unity.
Sharing tender secrets; shutting out worldly din.

To know His majesty. To experience His might.
Consumed by His passion, not daily cares.
Overwhelmed. Possessed. Standing in His Light.
Nothing of this world compares!
